Of late, much has been made in the alt-right press of the idea of “White genocide” as an existential threat posed by mainstream society, aimed at the obliteration of Whites in their formerly dominant homelands in Europe and North America. This movement—conceived and implemented by Jews and their leftist lackeys—is said to portend the virtual or literal end of the White race. It has no standard definition, and goes by various labels; a recent TOO piece by Richard McCulloch refers, for example, to the “White replacement and destruction movement” (WRDM). It has been expressed concisely (if ambiguously) by one writer who stated that, on this thesis, “the White race will have no future, and the future will be without the White race.” It sounds grim.
While it is true that White rule in many nations is under threat, I think it is premature—at least in the coming decades—to decry the physical elimination of Whites anywhere. Exaggeration and hyperbole do not serve White interests. We need to think a bit more carefully about ‘White genocide’, and indeed about the concept of genocide itself, lest we get lost in a storm of hype. Real threats to White interests risk getting subsumed by bogus—or at least exaggerated—dangers.
Let’s start with a look at the word ‘genocide’—a term with thoroughly Jewish origins. We can begin with standard dictionary definitions, but even here, there is a studied ambiguity. My Merriam-Webster has a single definition: “the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group”. Dictionary.com is very similar, adding only “or national” group. The construction of the word is straightforward: geno+cide, from the Greek genos- (birth, origin, or race), and Latin –cide (from cidere: death, killing). The word was coined in 1944 by a Polish-Jewish lawyer, Raphael Lemkin, in light of the on-going Nazi attack on Jews. Etymologically, then, the meaning is, or should be, clear: the physical death of an entire race of people—that is, the physical elimination of a genotype.
But upon further examination, we immediately run into problems. First, as anyone knows who studies the issue, the Germans did not seek, nor did they implement, the physical annihilation of the Jews; rather, they wanted something much less ominous: a German Reich cleansed of Jews, by a process of deportation and removal. The deaths (and there were many thousands) were an incidental byproduct, not the objective. Read more
